Audience: Preschool, Primary (k-3rd grade)
Category: Concept, Humor, Read Aloud
(This book has outstanding illustrations)


One fox in a pair of colorful socks starts “1 to 20, Animals Aplenty” with a cheeky grin; he is quickly joined by other familiar and unusual animals who introduce themselves with quirky charm through rhyming couplets. Readers will delight in the humor of the pictures and text which subtly teaches by labeling animal groups. No matter how many times you read this book, you can number it as one of those that counts for a great time!

Book cover Hi, Koo! New Review
Jon J. Muth (2014) , under 40 pages
Audience: Preschool, Primary (k-3rd grade)
Category: Concept, NCCBA, Poetry, Read Aloud
(This book has outstanding illustrations)


What is a haiku? Open this clever book and begin by reading the author’s note describing the poetic form known as haiku. As you continue reading, you’ll experience the four seasons in a year made up of twenty-six beautifully illustrated poems. Alongside drawings of a panda bear named Koo are poems that celebrate falling leaves, drippy icicles, crocus blossoms, and much more. While the book is an enjoyable read from cover to cover, it could also be opened to any page for a single inspiring haiku. Look carefully, and you’ll notice a capitalized word in each poem, from “Autumn” to “Zero”, making this a fun alphabet book too!
